I have noticed this; it comes up in 66-68 but seems "over" by the middle of 68...I have detected two aspects to it: doing IAONBBlue, he actually tries to sound like Bob D. Singing a song like CCS or esp the live GRoad, his voice is very different from what it would sound naturally, it seems to me.

So, I have often thought that he "tried too hard" in the early years, and then, "gave up" sometime in 68 and let his natural voice come through...

Dunno.

I'd say there was nothing natural about the nascent SF acid rock sound.

But it did have roots in folk music, bluegrass and country blues alot more than say, the Hollywood Sunset Strip sound (unless we're talking Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Bees and Monkees.)

But no, I really dig that forced vibrato effect Garcia used in his '66 - '67 singing.

Janis had an affected vocal style in her '66 - early '67 stuff as well, like a throwback to Ma Rainey and Mae West.

Love that too!

See you in the funny papers...

What's in Tom Wolfe's bag?

The manuscript to The Electric Fool-Aid Acid Test and a package of Sunshine Hydrox for Jerry.

i notice it on early HWAFOM and '69 versions, different pitch, more somber in '69
